The roads are very quiet and you get some stunning views. Be ready to deal with rolling hills some of which are rather steep. It also tends to be windy as you are so high up.

We did this ride on a very windy day so found it tough on the uphills into the wind but reached amazing speeds with a tailwind. We took 3 and 1/2 hours to complete the ride allowing for some photo and toilet stops. Easy route to follow, some great long runs, quiet roads and excellent views.
